Fighting the Germs of Anti-Semitism

Appalled passengers  of all persuasions scrambled last weekend to clean up anti-Semitic subway graffiti from New York City subway cars, using tissues and  hand cleanser.  Riders hastily removed swastikas and slogans such as “Destroy Israel” and “Jews belong in the oven” with whatever cleaning materials they could scrape up.  Purell worked best.  The origin of Purell sanitizing hand wipes goes back to the inventive Goldie and Jerry Lippman  of Akron, Ohio, and their successor,  Joe Kanfer, a past chair of Jewish Federations of North America.  Per its ads, Purell kills 99.99% of illness-causing  germs in as little as 15 seconds.
